• Methods, materials and measurement techniques "Largely unchanged for centuries, optical. (photonics.com)
  • The development of OCT in the early 1990s greatly benefited from components and methods used in fiber optical communications," said Fujimoto. (eurekalert.org)
  • Depending on the properties of the light source (superluminescent diodes, ultrashort pulsed lasers, and supercontinuum lasers have been employed), optical coherence tomography has achieved sub-micrometer resolution (with very wide-spectrum sources emitting over a ~100 nm wavelength range)[citation needed]. (wikipedia.org)
  • This advance has required the development of new lasers, improved spectrometers, minimally invasive catheters and endoscopes, and novel optical and signal processing strategies. (nih.gov)
  • En face capture enables high lateral resolution (typically approximately 1 µm) using medium- or large-aperture microscope objectives. (laserfocusworld.com)
  • Long-range OCT is a new range of operation that requires extremely high performance light sources, integrated optical receivers and signal processing," Fujimoto said. (eurekalert.org)
